C.T. & G. Fox, successors to Charles Fox (Grimwade, p. 513; Culme, vol, I, p. 162), were for many years chief manufacturing silversmiths to Lambert & Rawlings (from 1861 Lambert & Co.) of Coventry Street, Leicester Square, and afterwards working silversmiths to the trade in general. It was continued until his death by George Fox (12 October 1814 – 1910), younger son of Charles Fox junior and his wife, Catharine, who was succeeded by his son, Robert Frederick Fox (1847 – 24 June 1936). C.T. & G. Fox closed upon the latter's retirement in 1921.
